The hotel is central. Despite homeless people on the streets, nobody ever disturbed us and we felt pretty safe. The hotel is quite central in a walking distance from the Pier 39. There was no breakfast in the hotel, but there was a nice little place next to the hotel where we had a great breakfast. There was a free... More

Don't let the area scare you away! Two ladies traveling together - we were never bothered! Great location. We took the bus (very easy) to the wharfs and got back to our bus stop after dark. It's a 3 block walk from the Van Ness stop to the Motel 6 and we had no problems. There are good restaurants close... More

Motel itself was not bad. Careful attention, around the motel are very dangerous drug dealers. At night it is very dangerous to return to motel, view of syringes even on sidewalks. This motel is not included breakfast. bars nearby are not clean at all. bad area at all.

Not only was the staff very friendly, but the motel being right nearby Fisherman's Wharf (+/- 2 miles), the big surprise was the included parking garage! Large room, very clean, very quiet, just GRRREAT!

Very basic motel, but the rooms are decent. And believe it or not, there are no dirty wall-to-wall carpets here. That means cleaner and more hygienic room for us guests, and easier housekeeping for the staff. There was also a fridge in the room, which is not common on every Motel 6. But the AC was pretty noisy, so don’t... More

Good value, good location ( short walk to union square ) close to cable car route, edge of Tenderloin district but felt safe. Quite in room and would stay there again. We found that once there, we could walk to any part of the city from Downtown to Fisherman's Wharf to Nob Hill and to ChinaTown.

Good location in terms of proximity to Downtown, Union Square, shopping, restaurants etc however the Tenderloin is rough. I felt a bit unsafe at times with lots and lots of homeless people, lots of noise during the night and dirty dirty streets. Disappointingly the hotel wasn't fantastic either. Rooms were clean, however wifi didn't work for the entire three days... More

The room was bare essentials with two queen beds and a refrigerator. No alarm clock, no shampoo. The sink was separate from the bathroom which is always useful when there are multiple people. There were 10 electrical outlets available! They served coffee in the lobby each morning. The room was kept clean and the hotel was quiet for the five... More

Stayed at Motel 6 for a week, rooms are spacious and very clean even the bathroom. Room interior is sparse but exactly what you need, fridge, AC, TV and curtains to keep the light out. Location is central and sits on the outskirts of Tenderloin but no worries there are homeless people everywhere in San Francisco, if you leave them... More
